JAMB Registrar Insists Universities Must Stick To Admission Policies

Jamb Registrar, Ishaq Oloyede

Newly appointed Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation and Board, JAMB, Ishaq Oloyede, has said that admission into tertiary institutions must comply with national policies.

Oloyede disclosed this on Monday during the first Technical committee on admission to first choice institution held at the Bayero University Kano, adding, however, that the senate of each institution has the prerogative to admit candidates but this must be in adherence to national policies.

According to him the national policies include the use of 2016 JAMB UTME result printouts for all candidates who scored 180 and above

Other policies that must be strictly adhered to are the subject combinations of various courses as specified by the senate/academic board and included in the 2016 UTME brochure.



    The JAMB Registrar added that “In the discharge of this National assignment, it is important that we act with focus on what is beneficial to the largest number of Nigerians.

    “We must avoid adding to the burden of the masses of our people who rightly yearn for higher education as a veritable means of active participation in public life

    Vice Chancellor of Bayero University disclosed that only 21,000 out of 64,224 candidates that applied for admission into the university, made the cut-off mark, adding that only 6,500 would eventually be offered admission after the screening processes had been exhausted.

    Professor Bello stated that the University has always maintained transparency in its admission processes.
